Provided to the Tribune

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association and Sierra Nevada Journeys are partnering for the fourth annual Youth Backcountry Camps summer program.

All youths (ages 14-17) are invited to attend 2011 Youth Backcountry Camps. These programs are an opportunity for teens to develop backcountry skills in the mountains of Lake Tahoe. They can make new friends while learning about the natural history of the basin, outdoor leadership, teamwork, and participate in a service learning project building part of the Tahoe Rim Trail.

YBCC 2011 dates are:

Session 1 – July 6-8

Session 2 – July 24-26

Session 3 – July 28-30

Session 4 – Aug. 14-16

For teens with some experience or interest in backcountry travel, there will also be YBCC2. Like YBCC, the 5-day YBCC2 program focuses on backcountry skills and outdoor leadership development. This program provides a wilderness experience for young people with experienced and well-trained staff from the Tahoe Rim Trail Association and Sierra Nevada Journeys. YBCC2 2011 runs from Aug. 6-8.
